San Diego Bee Removal Company | Pro Pacific
You’ve probably heard in recent years how important it is for us to “save the bees!” These little buzzing critters are essential to our environment and ecosystem – but that doesn’t mean you need to house them in your backyard.
Here at Pro Pacific, we understand the importance of these little worker bees to our environment and ecosystem, which is why we use environmentally-friendly and safe methods to remove the bees from your property and relocate them somewhere else. With our methods for pest control in San Diego, these bees will be given the opportunity to thrive without being bothersome to you and your family.
Considering Hiring a Bee Removal Specialist?
If you’ve found a hive in your yard, you might want to have it removed for a number of reasons. If you have kids around, then it’s likely you want to protect the kids from wandering too close to the hive and getting stung.
Likewise, with pets, many of our four-legged furry friends like to chase bees for fun and play with them. The problem with this is that, in playing, sometimes your pet will win – and if they manage to swallow a bee, those stingers won’t feel too good going down.
In addition, bee settlements in or around your property can also cause significant damage to buildings and other structures. And of course, their buzzing might simply be a nuisance.
Whatever the case may be, if you have a bee problem or a beehive on or around your property, chances are, you want to get rid of it. That’s why, here at Pro Pacific Pest Control, we strive to be San Diego’s number one bee removal company.
The Bee Situation in Southern California
If you live in Southern California, such as in San Diego, Orange County, or the Riverside area, you should expect to have a beehive to contend with on your property around every 15 years on average. In reality, you may get them more or less often – and if you’re fortunate enough, you might never have a problem with bees at all.
Bees are a common pest, but they can result in serious damage to your property, as well as pose a public safety threat to residents and guests on your property. For these reasons, if there is an infestation of bees on or around your property, it should not be taken lightly.
Early Signs of Potential Swarms
It’s important to note that simply having bees buzzing around your home or property is not necessarily a surefire sign that you are dealing with an active beehive. You may be seeing scout bees, which have been tasked with the responsibility of swarming out to look for a new home to build a hive in.
To the untrained eye, these scout bees may look like the same bees you’d see coming from an active hive. Those trained in bee control, however, can spot the subtle differences in the way the bees are behaving to tell whether or not they are part of an active beehive within the structure, or scouting to create a new one.
If you do have these scouting bees around your property, it’s important to call for pest control in San Diego. It’s the first step to discourage these scout bees from inviting tens of thousands of fellow bees to make a home in your yard. Without taking these steps to get the bees to continue their search elsewhere, there is a 50/50 chance that your home will soon be invaded by a swarm of aggressive bees looking to share your property with you.
Scout bees tend to scout an area for around three days before they have the larger swarm move in to make their permanent home in the location. If you’ve been seeing bees swarming around your property for five days or more, then it’s usually safe to assume that the bees in question are from a growing or active hive and aren’t just scout bees.
Bees vs. Wasps: What’s the Difference?
As we said before, while they are a pest, bees fulfill an essential role in keeping our plant life growing. Wasps, however, don’t have nearly as impressive or important of a job – and they can pose a much larger threat to humans.
Wasps often are identified wrongly as being bees, as both share their signature black and yellow striped design on their bodies. This misconception can cause issues down the line, especially when a pest control San Diego company seeks to remedy the situation using bee removal and extermination services. While wasps and honeybees share some similarities, you should be able to tell the difference between the two quite easily by keeping a few simple facts in mind.
When it comes to seeing either pest on your property, here is what you need to know in order to be able to tell them apart:
- Wasps have longer, more slender bodies. They also make their nests on the underside of things like awnings and eaves, away from rain and sunlight. A wasp’s nest tends to have the appearance of globs of mud that have been stuck under the eaves or within the walls of the structure it’s been built on.
- Honeybees seek out secluded and warm areas to build their homes. These might be places like attics, walls, or chimneys. It is in these areas that they will build their sheets of honeycomb and create their own home.
Bee Free from Bees in Your Home!
Bees are notorious for being avid defenders of their homes. Especially when it comes to their hive, they become extremely defensive. While they aren’t as aggressive as wasps or hornets, they will attack if they spot something they deem to be a potential threat.
This is what makes a bee nest in your yard so problematic, especially in situations where you have children or pets present on the property. The threat is increased still further if anyone around has allergies to bee stings, which is not uncommon. This makes it dangerous and even potentially life-threatening for those with such allergies to live in proximity to these hives.
Disturbing the hive, even in an attempt to remove it, is inviting trouble if you don’t go about it properly. The bees will swarm and won’t hesitate to attack anyone and everyone nearby in an attempt to protect their queen. For this reason, it is crucial that you call on professionals like Pro Pacific Pest Control to prevent injury and to ensure the safe removal of the beehive from your property.
Why You Need Pest Control San Diego Specialists
It is essential to call on a bee removal expert if you’re experiencing issues on your property. As we have said, bees will protect their homes with everything they’ve got, so it is vital to exercise caution when attempting their removal.
One important reason to call upon an expert is that local and state laws exist governing the treatment and removal of bees. These regulations help safeguard bees against extinction, and – as we mentioned previously – this is essential due to their important role in our environment. By hiring Pro Pacific Pest Control to get your bee problem under control, you can rest assured that all state and local laws will be observed throughout the process of safely and effectively removing bees from your property.
Furthermore, we have been trained in using the proper equipment and techniques to remove any bee nests or hives from your property. This takes special training due to the fact that certain bees, like honeybees, are protected because they are so vital to our ecosystem. The method we use to remove your bee nest will depend on the size of the hive, where it is located, and the type of bees inhabiting the area. For this reason, we conduct a site inspection prior to removing the bees. This ensures the most effective and safest method of removal.
Bees are an incredible part of our environment and ecosystem. They pollinate our plants and help our world to flourish and grow. However, they are not harmless. Bees can become dangerous, especially when there are humans present who have deadly bee allergies. Bees don’t hurt humans alone, either, but animals as well. If someone has an allergy to bee stings, one of their stings can result in anaphylactic shock – or even death.
Bee removal also is a hassle to do on your own and can be a dangerous project to undertake without professional knowledge, training, and gear. This is what makes it so important for homeowners and property owners to identify potentially harmful critters on their property when they see them.
If you do see any, your next step should be to call on trusted professionals to come to the scene and help. When these hives or bees are not dealt with, the issue can quickly swell to a large swarm that poses a hazard to not just you and your family, but everyone in and around the surrounding area.
The Bee Removal Process
When you contact Pro Pacific Pest Control for our expert bee removal services, our bee specialist will do the following:
- Confirm You Have Bees on the Property: Sometimes these insects with stingers might look like bees, but in reality, they might actually be a hornet or a wasp. Because different insects require different equipment and methods to remove, it’s important for us to first inspect and know what we are up against.
- Find the Hive: If you do indeed have a hive on your property, we need to find its location. There may even be multiple hives to contend with, depending on the severity of the infestation. Our bee specialists will be able to determine where the entrance points are on your property that needs to be closed off in order to prevent more bees entering.
- Remove the Hive: Our professional bee removers are equipped and trained to handle a wide range of type of nests and hives. We use tools such as protective suits and bee poles to ensure that our bee removal is an effective and safe process throughout.
